About one year ago, Metso announced a launch of a new line of Neles globe control valves, targeted in the first phase to the Asia Pacific, Chinese and Indian petrochemical, refining and oil and gas industries. Global launch is to follow in 2014.

Metso is an international supplier of control valves and services. The addition of the globe valve product line means that Metso's customers in Asia Pacific, China and India will have access to a complete portfolio of control valve solutions backed by world-class product, applications and service expertise.

The new globe control product line builds and expands on technology and service capabilities acquired when Metso purchased Valstone Control Inc. (South Korea) in 2012. Metso's new Neles globe valve product line is intended to play a key role in many critical processes where extreme pressures and temperatures are issues. The Valstone products have been used widely in such applications in the Asia Pacific oil and gas and power industries. These customers will now have convenient access to Metso's advanced control and safety systems as well as its advanced materials and seal technologies.

Metso's new Neles globe valve series is designed for both general and severe service applications. The top of the line severe service valves use the Omega "Labyrinth" trim design to tackle even the toughest applications. Neles globe valves are used in various severe applications including anti-surge service. Metso also offers a specially designed steam conditioning valve. Each of the offerings is available with a variety of seat, seal, trim and actuation options to make them adaptable to a wide range of process conditions.

Neles globe valves provide innovative, fundamentally simple construction, operation and maintenance features to optimize process performance at the lowest cost. When paired with internationally acclaimed Neles ND9000 intelligent valve controllers, these devices provide very smooth response for exceptional process stability and remote diagnostics for highly cost-effective predictive maintenance.

During recent years, Metso has done series of investments in its global valve offering and presence. In 2012 Metso announced acquiring a globe valve technology and service company, Valstone Control Inc. in South Korea, inaugurated a new supply and service center in India, and completed expansion of its valve production premises in the US. Previous year, Metso opened a valve technology center in Finland, and 2010 in Shanghai. Metso also has high-class industrial valve facilities in Brazil and Germany
